Bob Gilmour came to the school in 1948 having previously  been at Kimbolton school and was placed in form 5c. He left in Dec 1949 having stayed on for an extra term in order to retake the School Certificate. He joined the Royal Navy and trained to be an Engine Room Artificer  at HMS Ganges. We kept in touch with one another for several years and I last saw him in 1957 when he was still in the Navy and single.


The photograph is of Bob and myself (Mick Brigstock) taken in April 1952 while we were both on leave, Bob from HMS Ganges and myself from National Service in the 1st Bn Northamptonshire Regt stationed in Trieste Italy. Whilst on this leave we visited WGS and were greeted  by Charlie Wrenn and Chunky Pine.


We had been in  the 1948/49 fifth forms and stayed on for the extra term mainly to retake the School Certificate in the Autumn Term. These boys had appeared in the Sept 1949 photo but did not show in the  name lists, its good to have their own identifications. As for myself I was in form 5c together with some half a dozen others who are shown on the above list and I would like to comment on some of the names.


5.38 John Chambers, 5.39 John Lovell not Jim, 5.40 Michael John Brigstock Mick (self), 5.41 Robert Eric Martin Gilmour Bob should be shown, 5.42 Maurice W Barwick not Michael, 5.47 Michael Wallis, 5.49 Patrick Tysoe  Pat


5 30 D Whiteman  I do not remember him as being in 5c, I believe he was in 5b. To support this he is in a b form in the 1946 school photo and he is not standing with the rest of us in the 1949 photo.  (Mick Brigstock)
